Tonight, we take a look at the November 27th, 2000 episode of WCW Monday Nitro.
This was a decent enough episode. Mean Gene pulls a Fall Brawl 2000 and goes off on Jeff Jarrett. Stevie Ray and Scott Steiner go one on one in the main event, with Steiner retiring Stevie. This was a pretty bad match, as Stevie seemed to be out of ring shape. We would also find out who Scott Steiner’s opponent for Starrcade, with Sid Vicious making a return. Looks like softball season is over. Steiner would also namedrop Austin and Rock as possible contenders for his title for some reason?
Overall, this episode was okay but largely forgettable. Russo is pretty much all but gone from the company at this point, and the company is kind of worse for wear. The product just feels very cold right now and they’re fighting an uphill battle to make the product better.
On to the Nightly.
